Systematic Cutting Ramets Production of Azalea in Mie Prefecture
Tadao Fujimori and Masayuki Kamata
Azaleas are produced on about 800 ha of field in Mie Prefecture, called by the name Mie SATSUKI. It is famous in Japan. A mechanical system for azalea cutting production is being developed but field planting work has not yet been undertaken with a mechanical system. Current planting work is very demanding because it must be carried out manually in the May rainy season. If we could establish a tray planting system for mechanical planting in nursery this system would make the field planting work easier.
